Long Live Analog!

Brian D. Hardin, Teri Hitt, Ari Rios (owner Laughing Tiger Studios)

We had a great time mixing at Laughing Tiger Studios in San Rafael, CA just North of San Francisco.
Producer, Brian D. Hardin, was in his element mixing on a SSL console. It was great to experience it. The resulting sound, to me, is so much more alive than anything created in the box (computer). The sonic messages come through loud and clear.

 Magic happened.

On our way there we went to the Sequoias to hug some trees and feel their quiet strength. The simple beauty of nature engulfs you and gently reminds you that there is so so much more to life than striving for this or that. Reality is more than meets the eye. We must FEEL to access the higher realms.

The biggest Sequoia  there is named General Sherman but we agreed to call it Mother Tree instead. While there we shot video for one of the songs on the album, Mother Earth.

We also shot video for another song, In The Center, at a river there. The river was a powerful presence that flowed all around me as I stood on some rocks. There were tons of dragonflys about. The sound of rushing water is good for the soul. I was happy I did not fall in!  Ha ha ha 🙂

The album was recorded analog and now is mixed analog. Soon to be mastered for vinyl (and CDs and maybe cassettes. Ya I said cassettes people!…. ha ha ha). Dream Analog will be released January 2020.

My hope is that it will feed you and inspire you to connect within and grow, to create and share your special gifts with the world. We need you. Blessings to you all.

It was never what your thoughts were thinking
cause they weren’t your own.

You gotta free yourself
you gotta be yourself
you gotta roll off the shackles and
go ahead and shine
roll off the shackles and shine

Do you ever dream of running away
from the wars and the wires and the endless parade?
In your darkest moment
you find you aren’t afraid
You just changed and
nothings gonna be the same

You’ve got a reason to believe

If you talk to anyone that really knows analog, you will be told there is a huge difference between digital and analog.

If you never heard an analog recording, then this just sounds ridiculous (What newer isn’t always better? What are you talking about?!).

When you really hear an analog record (not a digital recording pressed to vinyl), a real analog recording- you feel it. Continue reading
